Interaction with guests
I greet our guests at the front gate of the rental. I ask for their flight info. & expected time of arrival then I go on line to make sure their flight is on time. I prearrange with guests to blow their horn on arrival & as I live across the street I come out to greet them. I take them thru the house--showing them the location of the wifi, phone, safe, first aid kit, beach equipment, etc. I have a house instruction n sheet available with all details; location of medical center, grocery stores, restaurants, folders with tourist attractions, my phone number, etc. Since we live across from the rental we are available most all the time to offer advice on where to dine, sites to visit and genral imfo.

This is the perfect place to rent if you have a big family and want to save money. I live in Philadelphia and due to the political situation in Venezuela we decided to meet eight of my family members in Aruba. It was a great choice and we all had a great time. Read the overview of the house, it...

Just got back today from our stay and we loved it. It was 5 of us and we saved lots of money compared to most in the tourist areas. It was a nice humble home, just a few minutes from Baby beach. I recommend renting a vehicle if you plan on getting this rental because it's away from the tourist...

About the neighborhood
Lago Heights is a small community & the last one before the beach of Boca Gramde (mostly known for kitesurfing). It is a working class neighborhood. Our rental is one of very few in the immediate area. We are on the main road to the beaches. EXcept for holidays it is relatively quiet. Many locals go to the beach on their days off so there is more traffic. Since our yard is walled in it is very private & the neighbors keep to themselves. We live here for close to 30 years & we love the area. The tropical breeze is outstanding.
Getting around
We highly recommend renting a vehicle., however, There is bus service within a few blocks. So far all of our guests have rented a car because there is no transportation to beaches or places of interest. In the tourist area there are numerous guided tours available either by jeep, 4 wheelers & other vehicles.
There is no taxi service from our area. Taxis mostly operate in the tourist areas.
Car advised
How to get there
The directions to the rental from the airport are very easy. The roads are clearly marked. 1A is the route which one follows thru several small towns (villages) going as straight as possible around circles/roundabouts. The main city on the southeast side of Aruba is San Nicolas. 1A goes thru San Nicolas & you follow the signs showing Seroe Colorado/Baby Beach. Our street is marked & we are 3rd house from curve or end of street on the right. I most always phone our guests prior to arrival to give the, detailed directions.
Activities nearby
There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 4.0 mi.
